I am a very laid back person who enjoys laughing and spending time with those close to me and share our interests open minded. I am loyal, faithful, very honest, sincere and kindhearted. Doing special little things for others gives me great pleasure. I have a teen-age son who is and always will be my first priority. I look for the inward beauty in people and expect the same in return. Family and friends are extremely important to me and I spend a lot of time with both, but I have time to share with that special someone..I am a fiercely independent and intelligent man. I work full-time and own my home. I have been out of the dating scene for a while and I am ready to slowly start dipping my toes in the pool, I'm not ready to jump head first into a serious relationship and am looking to start out as friends. I want to connect with someone spiritually and intellectually before moving to the next level. I tend to start off rather shy, but once I get to know you, you will find I am funny, honest, loyal, and compassionate. I love reading, cooking, going to the gym, the theater, movies, the beach and warm weather. I'm a loving kind of man who loves quite romantic evening with that special woman. I feel quality time with that special woman is so very important for that everlasting friendship or love, we shall experience together forever.
